Dell Mini 10v Screen Resolution

1st Time poster here.

I have a Dell Mini 10v and I have a really annoying issue. The Screen Resolution of 1024X600. I have an audio editing/recording program that I would like to use on it, but it wants a native 1024x768 resolution. the bottom half of the program cuts off (which is where the particular editing tools that I want to use is located).

Does anyone know of a way to force the resolution on this laptop to go to 1024x768 even if it does look "pinched". I don't need square boxes. I just need to reach the controls on the program.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

BTW. the program that I am using is "Magix Audio Cleaning Lab".

  1. It can't be forced to display768 pixels when there are only 600. It's a physical limitation.
    Can the program be 'forced' to go into 800x600 resolution?
    Look at the program's minimum requirements here: http://www.decibelhifi.com.au/prod292.htm

  3. Like most of the similar netbooks, your Dell Mini 10v is having maximum screen resolution of 1024 x 600 px which is lower than the minimum required resolution to run Metro Apps of Windows 8. There is a simple modification in Windows registry to let you increase the screen resolution.

    Hit Win + R keys together on your netbook’s keyboard
    Type “regedit” without quotes in the dialogue box
    Locate the following location in Registry window,
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E 968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0000
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E 968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0001
    In both of these locations, find “Display1_DownScalingSupported” in the DWORD list
    Right-click on the DWORD and select modify, change the value from 0 to 1 for that DWORD
    Restart your netbook after closing the registry window
    Now open screen resolution window (Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display\Screen Resolution) on your netbook and there you can see more option to choose from. For example, you may choose 1024 x 768 px
    Select that resolution and apply the changes


    As now you netbook’s display resolution is equal to the minimum required screen resolution for running Metro Style apps of Windows 8, you may run the apps without any problem"
